Igloo building

The Teignmouth Igloo is almost finished but needs more clean, plastic milk bottles for this weekend. If you can wash and bleach them that would be really helpful.

Please bring them in to the TAAG Arts and Community Centre in Northumberland Place in Teignmouth if you have collected any. Hopefully it will be finished by Sunday 20th with your help.

The centre is open from 10am to 5pm every day.

The picture below shows the work done so far on the Teignmouth Igloo ready for the 10th Anniversary TRAIL Sculpture Trail.

    Hi Phil.  Just wondering if we can muster up support from Teign Transition against Shell’s exploitation of Arctic resources – see Greenpeace email below.  The Igloo building project is in support of preserving the Arctic environment so there is a certain resonance with joining the Shell/Lego protest.  Neil

    Hi Neil, LEGO are rattled. First our video was removed from Youtube. Hours later, it was put back after thousands of us voiced our outcry! But LEGO are still refusing to meet us. So in 4 days, undercover LEGO agents will go to their Head Office in Slough to deliver every single name on the petition asking them to dump Shell. You’ve already signed along with 103,239 potential LEGO customers – if each of us now share the petition with one more person we can double that number before we visit LEGO. The bigger number they see, the more worried they’ll be about future sales. 4 days to go – can you forward this email to some friends? They can sign here: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/lego-petition LEGO has very senior managers based in the UK. They care deeply about UK sales figures and the reputation of their brand. Right now, that reputation is being damaged by their refusal to reconsider their partnership with Shell. In 4 days, Greenpeace volunteers will show up at their office in front of LEGO’s staff and the public with all the names of people who want them to dump Shell. It might just be the nudge the Chief Executive needs to pick up the phone to the CEO in Denmark, and tell him it’s time to end their misguided deal with Shell. So let’s make sure that number is huge. Share this email with your friends.  https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/lego-petition When we work together we get results. From getting Jewsons to drop Amazon timber, to confronting Statoil near Bear Island, bit by bit we’re making companies behave responsibly. Together we can get LEGO to come over to the good side, too. Can you ask more people to join in and sign here? https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/lego-petition

    Thanks for all you do, Fran and the Arctic team PS: Yesterday, volunteers went to LEGO’s HQ in Denmark to try to deliver the names of everyone who has signed the petition to the CEO. But they were stonewalled. LEGO seem to think that if they carry on ignoring us, we’ll eventually go away. Let’s show them how wrong they are: https://secure.greenpeace.org.uk/lego-petition

    We now have enough milk cartons. Thanks to everyone who donated. Come and see the igloo and the polar bear who are both receiving many comments and generating conversations. Fran
